22-year-old London-born MELLE BROWN is set to release her debut ‘Intersection’ EP, this Friday (26th April) via Jamz Supernova’s label Future Bounce. The upcoming collection features the likes of BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Hot For 2019 artist Tiana Major9, up and coming Manchester rapper Lay Full Stop and producer Interlekt (who’s worked with the likes of Jay Prince.)
The first instalment from the EP comes in the form of soulful house offering ‘Background Noise’ featuring the talented new vocalist Oli Hannaford. The record has already had early support in the form of a premiere from BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra’s Toddla T.
Following his debut release ‘Atmosphere’, championed by Radio 1’s Phil Taggart and 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne & Tom Ravenscroft, South-London producer/musician JOE TURNER releases his brand-new double A-side via Jamz Supernova’s record label Future Bounce.
Leading the double A-side is ‘Retina’, a reflective, downtempo electronic track riding on an arresting undercurrent, densely layered with emotive instrumentation and introspective production.
Its counterpart ‘Stay’ is a bouncier, blissed-out track that radiates an emphatic energy through its warm melodies and lush intricate production.
Born and raised in Croydon, Turner grew up in a house filled with Soul music and a smidgen of nineties electronica providing the youthful musician with a varied musical palette. His grandfather, a jazz pianist, was a major influence, from whom he’s undoubtedly inherited the musical talent that saw him writing his first song at just eleven years old.
Following his teenage years playing in various bands, it has only been in the past twelve months that Turner turned his attention to writing once again. Concentrating on his own material whilst similarly experimenting in production, collaborations ensued with South-London based artists such as Stella Talpo and SIAMAKI before he took the plunge and released his own compositions.
In February 2019, Turner self-released his first single ‘Atmosphere’ which gained the support of BBC Radio 1’s Phil Taggart, BBC 6 Music’s Tom Ravenscroft and BBC 1Xtra’s Jamz Supernova, amongst many other radio stations & DJs. Also a hit on streaming services it was widely supported on editorial playlists.
With news of further recordings – a debut EP is imminent – and live dates in the pipeline, 2019 is looking to be a big year for the remarkable South-Londoner.
